HOW TO ROCK A PRINTED SHIRT
In my relentless quest for individuality I have often looked back at some of my outfits and thought: “wow! That was definitely not a good look.” However, there are other times that I look back and the outfit is not bad, but it’s how it has been put together that’s the issue. Top of that list is print shirts! Bold prints have always been top of my list when I go shopping. Most people shy away from them as they can be sometimes hard to style, so let me do my best to give you a helping hand.
Prints are now a firmly established menswear favourite, so much so that I don’t think it’s possible to walk down a street without seeing someone wearing them. The recent Ben Sherman Bohemian Mod collection is a great example of this, as its full of fun and bold prints, allowing us print lovers to explore this fun and elegant world this season.
A printed shirt easily transforms an outfit into something that’s more summer-ready. There are a few ways to go about styling a shirt with a bold print, but my favourite has always been to put together an outfit that complements the colours in the shirt, in this case I teamed it up with a pair of pink chinos and a black belt to break up the colours. Though bold and not for the faint of heart, it is still a very simple look and works perfectly for sunny days.
For a more laidback look I like to team a striped t-shirt with a relaxed cropped trouser. This absolutely has a holiday vibe to it and gives it a bit of a mod look with a twist with the addition of a bomber jacket.
Above all remember, individuality is the key to transforming a good outfit into a great outfit. It’s what moves you from blending in and standing out and it is something that we should all, on some level, be striving for. The little touches are a great start, but it doesn’t hurt to take it up a notch.
